Ok, picked up my new funhouse and have an intermittent issue that I can't figure out.
It's a replacement playfield, so I'm not sure if the problem already existed or came up after the switch. Sometimes all works fine, sometimes, the jaw opto, hotdog ramp opto and Rudy's jaw do not work. All three either work or don't together... I physically checked the switches in same row/column to make sure no diodes were missing, or light tabs were touching brackets, etc. Ibreseated ribbon cables, connectors.
I don't know what I'm doing, but it seems that the jaw is controlled by a board under the playfield and the optos by a neighboring board. So these two boards must have some 12v in common that is intermittent, right?
I'm hoping some funhouse guy out there had this same issue and can save me some time so I can begin tormenting Rudy on a regular basis Love this game.
Also, when I power off the game it makes a horrendous screechy sound, not the typical "pop".
Thanks for any advice!
